Format: Spiral-bound
This book offers much needed support to child care providers who are caring for special needs children or who wonder whether the child they are caring for has a special need. It is designed in an easy to use format: 33 exceptionalities are included (such as asthma, epilepsy, learning disabilities, abuse, etc.) with 3-5 pages of information on each one. The layout is in chart form with a spiral binding, so the book can be left open to the exceptionality you wish to review. Under each category the authors address the following: Behavioral Characteristics, What Else Could It Be?, and Recommendations. Additional resources are provided at the end of each category.

Format: Spiral-bound
This chart provides insight to MANY different special needs, from HIV, ADHD, FASD, Hearing loss and more. Looking at the chart I realized I fit many of the symptoms and behaviours of someone with hearing loss. I got a hearing test, and the doctor told me I have mild hearing loss and am being recommended to a specialist. This chart is very easy to read and as an Early Childhood Educator I know this chart will be useful for years to come. I love it.

A resource for educators; not to be used to diagnose students, but to guide teachers in steps to assist their learners.
